More Information


Words without Borders publishes original translations into English of contemporary fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, and interviews, as well as interviews, reviews, and essays written in English, and related multimedia pieces. We generally do not publish literature written in English, and we do not consider work that has already been published in English translation. We welcome proposals for our themed features at any time. Proposals for features should describe the focus and provide summaries of the three to five pieces to be included, brief biographies of the authors and translator(s), and original publication information or other background of the works. Please review back issues of the magazine before submitting. Proposals may be sent to
